Occupational Therapy Clinical Center

The Institute operates Clinical Centers on our campus which provide free services to individuals who may not have access to rehabilitative therapy care or those whose insurance benefits have expired. Clients are seen by graduate students who are supervised by certified and licensed faculty members. Last year the Centers provided over $1.3 million in pro bono services to the community. In June 2014 the Institute will launch the first Entry-Level Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) degree program in New England, one of only nine such programs in the country. An OT Clinical Center will be opened as part of the new program. The Center will serve adult and pediatric clients with a variety of physical, cognitive, mental or developmental conditions and its focus will be to facilitate their community integration. A primary goal will be to return the client to participation in activities of daily living despite illness, injury or disability.
